I was once a student at this school and it is honestly my favorite elementary school . I did so many fun things at a young age from creating clay bowls to watching chicks hatch and grow . It is a very great school =).

My son has been at North Pointe since first grade and this is his last year. The school is excellent and the staff is awesome. It is hard to find a school that offers a great education and have teachers that really care about the students. We both wish middle school didn't start until 7th grade.
